New Around Here
I want my router (ac68u 384_19) to query all dns and use the first one. DNSmasq allows this behaviour however I cannot find a way to do this. I tried fiddling with the dnsmasq.conf file but no luck. I use DoH proxy (https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/services/dns/doh_dnsmasq_https-dns-proxy) on openwrt which uses a different port (a new daemon for each server list) and then with dnsmasq it queries all those and returns the fastest. This is a neat trick because for some reason I find DoH faster than DoT (I dont know why maybe its just me) and querying all of the servers is even faster (let my router decide which is fasts DNS instead of online stats) than serially using DoT for each server in the list. Is there a way to achieve this on merlin ?
